Size of its well known cousin, house sparrow, but boldly and strikingly coloured on the male side (pics No 1, 2 and 4) - black face and bib, white supercillium and head contour, also white underneath, and rusty back with dark brown wing covers. The female (pics No 3 and 5) more discreet, drub colours.
Somewhere at outskirts of urban Pretoria, very green and calm gardens of a hotel.
On my way to Namibia, I stopped over in Pretoria for a couple of nights - nothing spectacular during this visit, except few spottings in the garden of the hotel... Lifer for me.
